UTEP's online degree plans connect with professionals - Daniel Perez, El Paso Times

Online education is gaining in popularity at UTEP and across the country. A 2014 study by the U.S. Department of Education showed that approximately 26 percent of the country's 21.2 million college students took all or part of their course materials online. The most recent data from UTEP's Center for Institutional Evaluation, Research and Planning show that 9,219 students enrolled in the campus' 630 fully online courses during the 2013-14 academic year compared to 4,419 students who took 319 online courses four years earlier. "Some of our military students, for example, are deployed and log into the courses from Afghanistan," Smith said. "UTEP Connect online programs allow working adults to earn a degree and an invaluable credential for promotion or advancement in the workforce."
